Dependency error updating with YUM on Fedora Core 4


I'm running Fedora Core 4 on a 32-bit Intel Pentium IV system, and I'm trying to update using YUM Extender 0.44. When I try to update I get the following error:

Setting up Update Process
['Missing Dependency: kdelibs-devel = 6:3.5.1 is needed by package kdelibs-apidocs']

I can't find kdelibs-apidocs in the list of items that need to update, so I'm not sure which components I can and cannot update.

What do I need so I can resolve this problem and perform the update?

the statement says that you have a package, kdelibs-apidocs, on your system which explicitly requires a certain verion of kdelibs-devel - a pretty reasonable thing really.. what use an API for the wrong version of software?? but this says a text document you don't apparently know is even on your system wants a certain library... well if you don't know that document exists... uninstall that package.

The system wanted to update kdelibs-devel. It did not want to update kdelibs-apidocs. If the version of kdelibs-apidocs I have wants to keep the current version of kdelibs-devel, then the error I'm getting makes sense.

However, even when I choose not to update kdelibs-devel, I still get the same error.

I don't understand why this happening, and I don't know what to select and deselect so I can update available components.

just run "rpm -e kdelibs-apidocs" to remove the documentation you have no interest in.

I wonder where you got the "kdelibs-apidocs" package to begin with. The official FC4 packages for KDE do not include a package with that name. How did you install KDE? Did you use a third-party repo, such as fedora-kde?

I don't know if I have no interested in the kdelibs-apidocs package or not. It might be needed for something.

I installed Fedora Core 4 of the compact disc images I made by downloading the distribution. I have been updating thet system on a regular basis using YUM Extender. Perhaps a subsequent update I performed installed this package.

Like I said, "kdelibs-apidocs" is not one of the "official" KDE packages Rex Dieter prepares for Fedora Core. That is why I am wondering whether you have a third-party repository enabled and got your KDE package from there instead. From the name of the package, I'd infer that it's just a documentation for KDE library API's. It's very unlikely you'll ever need it.

I'd suggest that you simply remove it with "yum remove kdelibs-apidocs". It will show you all the possible dependencies. If there's none, I'd go ahead and delete it.
